Tweed 0.9.16: connection improvements

0.9.16 of Tweed is now available in the App Catalog.

Changes:

  • loading spinner/scrim has been replaced with spinner/cancel button (like web browser app)
  • Tweed will auto-retry connecting to Twitter on failure response from Twitter API (this has been recently causing Tweed to hang))
  • option to cancel active request by tapping cancel button; tapping refresh will retry (instead of having to re-select timeline from nav menu)
  • shake for retry and refresh

Shake

We’ve added support for the accelerometer shake events. If you shake your phone while on a timeline:

  • if loading (Twitter is taking a long time), this will force a retry
  • if no active loading, then refreshes (same as hitting refresh button)

So, you could always force a retry by tapping cancel, then refresh, but we figure you can vent some frustration by shaking the phone. Tweed

    I love love love Tweed on my Pre. Any hope of getting it for OSX?

    You could always run the WebOS VM in virtualbox, and run Tweed in there, on your Mac :Dp

    We are happy you like Tweed and thanks for using it.

    We don’t have any plans for porting Tweed to a desktop client. Sorry

    D/L latest (0.9.16) Tweed, and it seems to be much, much faster loading and switching between timelines.
    In the past switching from a WiFi connection back to Sprint would resulted in 2-5 minute load time. Now Tweed will refresh in under 15 seconds. It is surprisingly fast. Very nice.
    ===========
    One thing I can’t figure out – can you search for a Twitter for a particular user name with Tweed?

    Thanks for the great product.

    Sorry about the bold, large typeface. I didn’t do it. -)
